250 Japanese Knitting Stitches

250 Japanese Knitting Stitches contains the original collection of knitting stitches first published by Hitomi Shida in 1996. Copies of the original Japanese edition have been jealously coveted by knitters around the world - and now Tuttle Publishing brings you this classic in English for the first time! Hitomi Shida's previous work, the Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible was released by Tuttle in October 2017 and has already been purchased (and tested) by thousands of avid knitters who are thrilled to discover a treasure trove of elegant and intricate new patterns. This book was Hitomi Shida's first effort and, like its successor is filled with her highly original and beautiful designs and variations on knitting classics. Shida's stitch patterns have become a driving inspiration behind many modern western knitting designs, and experienced knitters know this. In this beautifully presented stitch dictionary you'll find:

Stitches that are perfect for borders and edgings
Beautiful and intricate cable stitches
Elegant popcorn stitches, from refined to bold
Multiple variations on individual patterns.


Veteran knitting instructor Gayle Roehm guides knitters through the particulars of the patterns and explains how to execute the stitches. Images of completed garments here and there help show the potential of these striking stitch designs.

As with other hand dyed yarns, we would recommend alternating skeins every two rows or so.

We care deeply about the environment and we're aware of the effects that chemicals can have on it, so we make every effort to exhaust all dyes in the dyebath so that no nasties go down the plughole. It is not always possible to exhaust *all* the dye, all the time, especially with certain dyeing techniques, so if you are intending on using your yarn for colourwork or with paler colours it pays to give it a wash first, just to be sure.

We try to ensure all colours look true on our monitor but they can vary substantially. If you’re unsure about a particular colourway please get in touch!
